Artist Statement

My recent work forms part of an ongoing exploration into the curiousness about existence and toys with the contradiction involved in feeling both a sense of belonging and feeling displaced. Wild animals are introduced into a series of human environments to provoke a fresh and inquisitive perspective onto something familiar. Attempting to reflect on our everyday surroundings along with our conventions and behaviour and in part making us feel an outsider in what we consider our own space the work approaches the difficulties associated with confronting and comprehending our own reality.
